Toyota Platz SR20 Drift Car (Plus R32 Skyline)

The body of a Toyota Echo with the underbody of a 180sx!

Masanori Ido, the owner of this Toyota Platz (Toyota Echo in the U.S.) and the R32 we will be looking at in this article, has been featured in Option Video as well as other places. He drifts this often and has done extensive work to the Platz of his to make it what it is today and to be able to drift in an official RWD setup! It’s essentially an S13 SChassis underneath now.

If you want to see updates of his cars, make sure to follow him on Youtube
